DIRECTIONS

  • Soak the beans in water for several hours or overnight. Drain, then cook them until tender (about 1 hour). Drain.
  • While the beans are cooking, saute the onions in the oil with salt.
  • When translucent, add ginger, chiles, and garlic. Simmer on low heat for a few minutes.
  • Add the coconut milk and simmer for 5 more minutes.
  • Combine the beans and the coconut milk mixture in a large pot. Add the soy sauce and chard, and cook until the chard wilts.
  • Remove from heat and serve (I like it with rice).
